Hi(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

When we use the integration by parts to find the integral of xcosx dx, we assume that cosx dx = du and integrate both sides to find u

When we integrate

du = cosxdx

we find that u = sinx

the question is why don't we take the integration constant C into account?
